Title: My Sketch from Nature-137: Shirley's 264th Assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts -March 31, 2014
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 35.00cm x 90.00cm (14.00 inches x 35.43inches) Pen on Sketchbook
Completed Time: March 31, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 3rd pen sketch - painting from the nature at Chinese National Academy of Arts in Beijing, March 27, 28 and 31, 2014.

Instead of ordering it with pen in the classroom, I painted it three times out of the door, I mean to paint facing the tree and the flowers because I wanted to make sure the structures of the flowers and to keep them in my mind.

So, on March 31, I worked nearer the tree nearer than I did, and to see it more carefully, this week, I could not wear my sun black glasses, so that the strong sunshine in the noon hit my eyes very much, then my heart was happy for I did feel that I had learned so much from the nature and from the strict and professional training of the school in Beijing.

How do you think of this sketch? Do you enjoy it?
